WEBBE APPEAL DISMISSED


Hapless left-winger Claudia Webbe has lost an appeal against her harassment conviction.  The guilty verdict against the MP was upheld at Southwark Crown Court on Thursday and she will now face a recall petition in Leicester East that could oust her from Parliament.

Webbe was found guilty in October and handed a suspended sentence the following month, but the recall petition was put on hold pending her appeal.  She was expelled from Labour after her sentencing and the party called on her to resign her seat.  Webbe refused and continues to represent Leicester East as an independent.

In order to remove her, at least ten per cent of her constituents must sign the recall petition.  A by-election can then be held.  One of the favourites to succeed Webbe is none other than her predecessor - Keith Vaz.  The disgraced Vaz returned to the frontline of local politics following Webbe's conviction, fuelling rumours of a possible run for his old seat.

Webbe's majority at the 2019 general election was 6,019.  Vaz's majority at the previous general election was 22,428.

LABOUR COUNCILLOR DEFENDED JIHADI JOHN


A Labour councillor elected less than three weeks ago has been suspended from the party pending an investigation.  The Jewish Chronicle reports that Cllr Ibrahim Ali (pictured above, left) was a member of CAGE, an advocacy group for Islamists held in detention.  The group has been labelled 'apologists for terror' and in 2015 a CAGE spokesman described Mohamed Emwazi as a 'beautiful young man' who had been radicalised by British intelligence services.  Emwazi is better known by his nickname 'Jihadi John', the sadistic Daesh executioner who is thought to have personally beheaded several Western hostages as well as dozens of Syrian soldiers.

Later in 2015 Ali appeared before a House of Commons select committee and defended CAGE's description of Emwazi, pointing out that the comments were made in reference to the man with whom the spokesman had met with in 2012 - not the butcher he would later become.  When Emwazi was killed in a drone strike in Syria, CAGE expressed dissatisfaction that he had not been brought to trial.  CAGE is such a toxic organisation that Labour MP John Spellar urged those funding it to drop their support: "Those that have provided them with support must very seriously question not only their support for CAGE, but how they got to make such a decision to support an organization like this".

Cllr Ali was elected for the Bruce Castle ward in Haringey, north London, alongside the two other Labour candidates (both pictured above with Ali).  He was a full-time communications officer with CAGE from 2015, although it is not clear when he ceased to be involved.  In 2019 he was the election agent for none other than Dave Lammy and is also the secretary of Tottenham Constituency Labour Party.  Neither Lammy or Ali responded to the Jewish Chronicle's request for comment.  Ali has also locked down his Twitter account.

BEV TURNER'S MONOLOGUE 21.05.22

There was no Neil Oliver on his latest show, but Beverley Turner did a magnificent job standing in for him.  Bev socked it to Klaus Schwab's 'fourth industrial revolution' by focusing on what appear to be fairly innocuous tech changes that were introduced during the pandemic: "I'd rather live in a spontaneous future with people, rather than wi-fi at the centre, than planned slavery worshiping a digital god".  Here here.

Click below for a monologue worthy of Mr Oliver himself...


Despite his absence from the GB News studio on Saturday, Neil Oliver has still put himself around a bit on our screens.  In the last few days he has appeared on a variety of shows, speaking to colleagues Mark Steyn, Andrew Doyle and Dan Wootton.  However, we haven taken a clip from his most recent podcast in which he discussed the looming food shortages we are being prepped for.  Get your Oliver fix below or subscribe to his regular podcasts via YouTube here.

KHAN'S FAKE FOLLOWING


Do 3.2 million people really follow London mayor Sadiq Khan on Twitter?  We highly doubt it.  Read on...

With Elon Musk's Twitter takeover on hold, attention has been drawn to the world of Twitter bots and fake accounts.  Musk says the hold-up revolves around Twitter's claim that less than five per cent of Twitter profiles are fake.  Musk says the figure is more likely to be around 20 per cent and there is lots of evidence to back him up.  On Wednesday several news outlets - including the New York Times and Daily Mail - reported on an audit that had been carried out on popular Twitter profiles.

The auditors found that of Joe Biden's 22 million followers, a whopping 49 per cent were fake accounts.  The same audit also found that of Musk's 94 million followers an even greater figure of 73 per cent were fake.

Another indicator of the proliferation of fake accounts can be seen in the level of audience engagement with some supposedly popular accounts.  The aforementioned New York Times has 53 million followers listed on its profile, yet its posts rarely garner more than 100 comments.  BBC News has several accounts.  Its UK profile has almost 14 million followers, yet some of the stories it posted on Wednesday received less than ten comments and as little as a dozen retweets.  Its World profile has more than twice the followers - over 36 million - but that does not show in the engagement it receives.  

Perhaps one of the most stark differences between followers and engagement can be seen over at Time Magazine's account.  Despite its supposedly 19 million following, Time can receive as little as zero comments on its material.

Sadiq Khan has two accounts on Twitter.  The one pictured above is the larger of the two, but he also has another with 1.1 million followers listed.  It was from the latter account that he tweeted an article he'd written for The Independent earlier this week, in which he bemoans a 'surge in far right terrorism'.  The tweet attracted much more interest than his usual couple of dozen replies - more than 500 in fact.  However, despite supposedly having a million followers, the comments were overwhelmingly negative towards the mayor.  Many reminded Khan of his previous 'part and parcel' remark with regards to terrorism, while others noted that Islamist terrorism was a far greater threat.  Some objected to his silence on the far left terrorists of BLM and Antifa, while others pointed out that he should be focusing on rampant criminality in London.  One of the latter tweets came from Reclaim's Martin Daubney, previously a Brexit Party MEP.

The reaction to Daubney's tweet highlighted the absurdity of Twitter's claim that just five per cent of Twitter users are fake accounts.  Whereas Khan had received 215 likes for his initial tweet - Daubney received more than 1,600 for his reply.  Logic dictates surely therefore, that Daubney must have millions of followers himself.  No, he has less than 112,000 compared to Khan's 1.1 million.


It could be argued that Daubney's response had been retweeted four and a half times as many as Khan's initial tweet and therefore garnered a larger audience, but that still doesn't add up.

Khan, it seems, is followed by a lot fewer people than Twitter suggests.  The game is up and thanks to Musk everyone knows it.  It's time for the tech giant to give up the game and give free speech a chance.

NEIL OLIVER'S MONOLOGUE 14.05.22

Neil Oliver tackles the despicable WHO pandemic treaty in his latest monologue.  What is the WHO pandemic treaty you may ask, for there has been no mention of it in the mainstream media - quelle surprise?  The WHO treaty will mean nations who sign up to it will no longer have control over their own response to new diseases.  If the World Health Organisation was to dictate lockdowns, mask mandates or vaccine passports then that's what the signatories would impose on their citizens.  The very concept of the treaty subverting democracy and national sovereignty, which is of course at the heart of the globalist agenda.  The WHO is another unelected body that is not accountable to anyone.  Boris Johnson has already indicated that he will sign up on our behalf, undermining the Brexit vote and keeping the UK on course to join Klaus Schwab's new world order.

Neil does not take the implications lightly: "Be in no doubt, this so-called pandemic treaty is the single greatest power grab that anyone has seen in our lifetime - it's nothing less than the groundwork, the laying of deep foundations for global governance".  He ends his piece by delivering a stern and defiant message, in that he will not comply with any WHO diktat 'while there is breath in my body'.  Here here!

Click below for Mr Oliver's take on the latest disturbing globalist assault on our lives and liberty.


Despite the media blackout on this dystopian treaty, a very successful poll on the UK Parliament website is on course to reach the 100,000 threshold required for a Commons debate.  A debate is the very least we could demand for something that could affect every single person in the United Kingdom.
